Thought for the Month

I write in the absence of our minister, the Revd Lisa who is off sick, and I pray that by the time you read this she will have recovered and back with us again. I too have been housebound over the past weeks after a small operation on my foot. During this time I have been doing a bit of early spring cleaning. Well not really spring cleaning, more sorting out the contents of the filing cabinet. I have been sitting, with my foot up, downsizing the paper work and I came across this encouragement to pray, which I would like to share with you.

"Good morning;

I am God. Today I will be handling all your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help. If the devil happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFJTD (something for Jesus to do) box. It will be addressed in my time not yours. Once the matter is placed in the box do not hold on to it or attempt to remove it. If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling please consult me in prayer to be sure it is the proper resolution. Because I do not sleep or slumber there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest my child. If you need to contact me I am only a prayer away".
